Work and Life in the Green City

Paul Chatterton, Miatta Fahnbulleh, Rob Hopkins, Guy Standing and Will Stronge

Description Details

It’s widely agreed we’re in a climate crisis, but what do we do? It’s not a matter of tinkering; many now argue that there needs to be fundamental change in the way we live and work if we want to secure sustainable futures for all. What’s the alternative thinking that can inspire change?

Miatta Fahnbulleh (Chief Executive, New Economics Foundation), Rob Hopkins (Transition Town and author of From What Is to What If), Guy Standing (author of, among other books, Basic Income: And How We Can Make It Happen) and Will Stronge (Autonomy think-tank) look at communities and new economic thinking; the Green New Deal and cities; basic income and what this might do for life and work; and how a four-day week for all might be achieved. Chaired by Paul Chatterton (Our Future Leeds).

Presented in association with the Bristol Inclusive Economy Initiative, University of Bristol.

Book online or in person at Watershed Box Office or on Tel: 0117 927 5100 Mon – Fri from 09:00 and Sat & Sun from 10:00.

Events start punctually and, out of consideration to other audience members and speakers, our policy is not to admit latecomers.

We run many free events and our prices for other events are good value, but we want to make our events as accessible as possible. Pay What You Can tickets are available for this session. Please select from the four options the price you would like to pay for a ticket. Please note that only two Pay What You Can tickets can be purchased per transaction. If you would like additional tickets please book for the event again.

We endeavour to hold events in venues that are accessible to all. Watershed’s cinemas and event spaces are all located on the first floor which is accessible via the lift located in the main entrance foyer at Box Office. Once on the first floor there is level access to all areas. The venue has a hearing loop system. If you have specific access concerns it is advisable to contact the venue direct.

We sometimes film and photograph events. Please let us know if you do not wish to be filmed or photographed.
